"Sleep is something we all want and need," says Professor Ron Grunstein, who will deliver an informative and entertaining Sydney Ideas talk about why sleep is so important and how we can improve the quantity and quality of the sleep we get each night.
Up to one in five Australian adults report sleeping less than six hours per night, ten per cent have obstructive sleep apnoea, and another five per cent have chronic problems with insomnia.
Insufficient or disordered sleep is now recognised as a major cause of reduced alertness, fall-asleep crashes, heart disease, stroke, metabolic dysfunction and impaired mental health.
We invite you to join us for this informative and important talk, which will be followed by an extended opportunity for questions and answers.
